Updated Price List

We’ve had to make the hard decision to review our price list. I’ve always found it a difficult decision to raise prices, but we do need to bring our prices closer in line with other Physio businesses.

Covid-19 Protocols and Guidance

Public Health England have provided us with updated guidance for Healthcare settings and Close Contact services (updated 15th March 2022). Here is a summary of the update, and what this update means for the studio:

* Universal Masking is still recommended. It is still strongly recommended that both staff and patients wear masks while in a Healthcare setting. The Physio and Pilates In Motion studio is registered as a healthcare setting, and my Pilates classes are taught under my healthcare insurance. This means we are still requesting that you continue to wear masks.

* We must continue to screen for Covid-19 and respiratory symptoms (cold, cough, runny nose, breathlessness). This means you will need to continue to complete your screening forms before each appointment / class.

* If respiratory symptoms are highlighted, a Covid-19 test should be done. If you test negative, you can still attend your appointment / class.

*Ventilation should be optimised. The CO2 level recommended for exercise and enclosed spaces (eg, our treatment room) is 900ppm or less. If levels are higher than this then masks should be worn. We have CO2 monitors in the studio and unfortunately our ventilation is regularly above 900 ppm during studio classes and in the treatment area, so it is recommended that masks are continued to be worn.

* Social distancing of at least 1 meter should continue. Classes will continue to be social distanced. All mats are spaced 1.8 meters apart. We cannot social distance for hands-on Physio / Massage treatments, so the appropriate level of PPE will continue to be worn.

*We must continue to clean and disinfect all high touch areas and treatment areas between each patient.

I hope this all makes sense! I know some of you will be pleased that mask are still recommended, and some of you will be frustrated. It is really important to us (as a business and as individuals) that we are following the healthcare guidance given to us and doing the best we can to keep everyone safe. We would like to thank you all for your continued support through the Covid-19 pandemic. If we all play our part with these small measures then it will help to keep our community safer and help to keep our services runnn
